We were impressed with O'Brien Lines on our day trip to Inisheer. I'm not sure why other reviewers have said that the ports and boarding were disorganised as the whole process was quite straightforward for us. The only downside was having to queue for a...More

There were 3 in my party and a large dog. We took the ferry to Inis Mor and then to the Cliffs of Moher. Excellent service, staff very friendly. Liam was great for answering questions and good company for the passage. Highly recommended!

We took the 1 hour Cliffs of Moher boat cruise. We only spent about 10-15 minutes looking at the cliffs themselves (which were beautiful and worth the time). The captain was good, but the boat was late getting there and then it took us 10...More

I think the ferries are weather specific. Storms roll in quickly, so you will just need to check in and see how your day is looking. Do take the ferry to the Aran island.

Hi there, thank you for your question. You may certainly stay overnight on the Islands. You can stay for as long as you like, and the return fare is still the same. When you choose your Islands, for example Inis Mor... More
